Help Get Rene Home

Our friend Rene got denied entry to the United States while returning from an overseas tour.  Los Angeles, where he lives with his US-born wife Emily, is his home.  He misses his wife and cat dearly and wants nothing more than for everything to be back to normal. 

Rene has contributed greatly to the music scene and inspired many people with his band, The Brains.

This fundraiser is to help Rene get his initial legal fees taken care of.  Unfortunately, there will be more, but anything you can donate to help start the process of getting him back home would be greatly appreciated.  If you're not able to donate, that is okay; please share this link, though.  Any help is needed.

Below is a message from Rene:

"Hi, everyone.  I'm currently in Vancouver.  I got denied entry into the USA and am not allowed in for 5-years with a valid Visa waiver.  I miss my wife and friends, and I need hep to fight this injustice.  I have to get some funding to finance my return with the help of lawyers, so please donate.  That would be amazingly appreciated, and it will bring me back to my home in Los Angeles.

-Rene d la Muerte"

Thank-you all for your help and generosity.
